Before I had children, Easter decorations at home would at best be a bowl of mini eggs on the coffee table. Decorating the house would be confined to Christmas. Now though, I find myself coveting trinkets to scatter about the house in an attempt to create a bit of Easter excitement for my girls. Here are my 10 favourites, click the titles to go straight to the product page for any that tickle your fancy:
1. The Easter Garland
You have to include a garland or bunting somewhere, don't you? This one is £12 and is so pretty!
2. The Easter Wreath
There are lots of wreathes around online, many incorporating eggs etc but I chose this understated one to share with you. Priced at £36, you could really display this all Spring.
3. The Easter Tree
Yep, there is such a thing! A great price at £13.50 and you could re-use it at Christmas too. Lots of hanging Easter decorations available to 'Easter it up'.
4. Set Of Six Polka Dot Easter Egg Decorations
£8.99 for this set of 6, would be perfect for the tree!
5. The Easter Sign
Cute! £8 for the small one or £16 for the large.
6. Wooden Chicken Coasters
£10.50 for four, and they could really be used all year round if you needed any more persuading...
7. Speckled Egg Dish
You remember the bowl of mini eggs I mentioned? Wouldn't one of these be perfect? £13 in either blue or natural.
8. Vintage Hen Egg Basket
Now this one you really CAN use all year round! £15 and I love it. Very country kitchen!
9. Easter Paper Chains
£3.75 for an Easter decoration AND a craft activity for the children!
10. Easter Egg Hunt Sack
And finally! Love this egg hunt sack for £6. It measures (approx) 270x350mm so is a great size, not too big, not too small and a lovely alternative to a basket.
With just over two weeks until Good Friday, now is the ideal time to grab a couple of items. I'll be following this up with some more Easter blogs - look out for my favourite egg cups on the market and a gift guide with alternatives to chocolate eggs.

I always think buying gifts for Mother's Day is harder than for a birthday; there's a little more sentiment behind it. The months and years seem to roll around so quickly these days and each year seems to get a bit harder!
I've actually started a kind of present diary now, I make a note of what I get people (mainly family) so that I can refer back to it; I can also make notes of gift ideas I think of throughout the year. It helps avoid repeating presents too!
With Mothers Day just around the corner, I've put together a list of my favourite gifts for Grandma (or Nanny, Nana, Granny, whichever name you use!).

I don't know about you, but I always feel like a Valentine's gift has to hit the right tone. Somewhere there has to be some kind of meaning or romance to make it worthy of being presented on the day of love!
Well, I've spent hours exploring ideas to fit the bill (and the budget) and assembled my ten favourites here.
